§ 36. Mr. Nigel Davies
asked the Minister of Health whether he is aware that, whereas he has proposed that the number of hospital registrars and senior registrars in England and Wales should be cut from 2,800 to 1,700, it is proposed that the cut in the North-East Metropolitan Region should be from approximately 300 to 134; and what is the reason for this greater proportionate cut in this region.
§ Mr. Nigel Davies
asked the Minister of Health whether he is aware of the concern felt by the smaller non-teaching hospitals at the proposed cut in the numbers of registrars employed; and what steps he proposes to take to ensure an adequate service to patients without these registrars.
§ 73. Mr. Vaughan-Morgan
asked the Minister of Health what is the present establishment of hospital registrars and senior registrars for the South-West Metropolitan region; and to what figure these will be reduced when the proposed cuts are implemented.75W
